5 best smartphones under Rs 20,000 to play PUBG Mobile

If you are in the market to buy a mid-range smartphone mainly for playing PUBG Mobile, there are some great options to choose from. Let’s take a look:


To say PubG Mobile is the most popular game right now in India would be an understatement. The multiplayer battle-royale game where 100 players shoot and kill each other to be the last man standing has caught on like wildfire. While this is hardly the best designed mobile game, the primary reason for the game’s infectious popularity is the ability to play the gmae on just about any smartphone. Albeit in a lower graphics settings, PubG Mobile runs on entry-level phones, all the way to the premium flagships where you get the best experience. In India, however, the mid-range segment is the most popular with most phones under Rs 20,000 offering decently powerful performance, just enough to play games like PubG Mobile and even excel at it.

If you are in the market to buy a mid-range smartphone mainly for playing PubG Mobile, there are some great options to choose from. Let’s take a look:



5. Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro


The Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro may not be a huge upgrade over its predecessor, but it can handle PubG Mobile just fine. The Snapdragon 636 is showing little signs of rust but the popular battle-royale works just as well as other mid-rangers. In fact, on GameBench, the Redmi Note 6 Pro recorded 25 FPS with 97 percent stability, indicating it’s jitter free and no lags. You won’t however get the best graphics on the phone as the Adreno 509 GPU can only support medium graphics, but the 6.26-inch display makes it a pleasant experience. It has also has a large 4,000mAh battery ensuring you can play on for longer.



4. Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2

Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2



The Asus ZenFone Max Pro M2 was a quick successor to the previous stock-Android mid-ranger by the Taiwanese giant, and it makes a strong argument at being one of the best phones for gaming in the mid-range segment. With 6GB RAM and a Snapdragon 660 processor, it has enough resources to handle long hours of gaming, especially intensive titles like PubG Mobile. On GameBench, the Max Pro M2 delivered stable frame rates of 30FPS with little lags. While that’s not the max PubG Mobile FPS can go, it’s enough to play competitively online. The 5,000mAh battery makes the Zenfone Max Pro M2 last longer than most mid-rangers while gaming.



3. Realme 2 Pro

Realme 2 Pro


The Realme 2 Pro also sports the same hardware as the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 but thanks to a larger, more immersive display, playing PubG Mobile on the Realme 2 Pro is a slightly better experience. The game has little to no lags and a steady frame rate of 30 FPS, according to GameBench. There is also a dedicated game mode that silences incoming messages and boosts resources to allow for better gaming. The 3,500mAh surprisingly lasts quite long allowing for longer hours of gaming.



2. Honor Play

Honor Play

The Honor Play is designed keeping PubG Mobile in mind. In China, the phone was a result of an official collaboration with Tencent and playing PubG Mobile on the phone is a unique experience. The phone supports 4D haptic feedback in the game. Every time you press the trigger you receive a vibration feedback. It also varies from one gun to another, and while it doesn’t really contribute to you playing better, the experience is a lot more enhanced. Furthermore, there’s 3D surround sound through headphones that helps you track footsteps and gunshots in the game. Finally, the phone supports GPU Turbo that Honor claims boosts the performance by 60 percent as compared to the previous generation. It also runs on a flagship Kirin 970 SoC coupled with 6GB of RAM. On Gamebench, we registered 40 FPS on PubG Mobile with high stability, which means the Honor Play is one of the best smartphones to play PubG Mobile.



1. Xiaomi Poco F1

Xiaomi Poco F1


If you’re looking for the best phone purely to play PubG Mobile under Rs 20,000, the Poco F1 is your best bet. The phone may look like an average mid-ranger from the outside, but under the hood is a flagship Snapdragon 845 which has been the best chipset for mobile gaming so far. The base variant of the phone which is priced at Rs 18,999 has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage which is enough to run PuBG Mobile at the highest graphics settings. On GameBench, we registered 40 FPS which is as high as it can go in the game while the stability was at a high 98 percent. More than that, the phone has a dedicated cooling system that draw heat away from the CPU so that longer hours of gaming doesn’t hamper the performance. There’s also a large 4,000mAh battery that easily lets you play for hours without depleting the battery.

Can a triple-camera setup be the key chance of Apple’s iPhone comeback?

First look at 2019 Apple iPhone XI

Apple’s planned expansion into a three-smartphone model wasn’t exactly rewarded in 2018 as the company’s shares dipped 12 percent in December, but the Cupertino-based company has a history of bouncing back. While it’s still too early to judge the fate of the IPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR, we can now confirm that Apple will launch three new iPhones in 2019, continuing the current lineup. We have gotten our hands on a very early look at the 2019 iPhone. This is in fact the very first look at what Apple is up to and by the looks of it, the next flagship iPhone will have three cameras on the back.


It is claimed that the 2019 iPhones are still in Engineering Validation Test (EVT) stage, and there could be changes in the details when the phones will eventually launch in September 2019. We also know that Apple plans to launch three iPhones in September 2019 — One low-end variant, possibly the successor to the iPhone XR and two high-end variants, succeeding the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max. Not knowing the scale at which the image was rendered, it is difficult to say which variant will sport the three cameras. However, given the drastic change in the camera setup, this, most probably, is our closest look at the top of the line 2019 iPhone.


The leaked renders reveal a square camera unit housing three cameras aligned non-linearly. There are two cameras aligned vertically, similar to the iPhone XS. The render reveals there will be a third camera placed between the two, on the side. Above that is an LED flash and a microphone on the bottom.



Excitement level over 9000!!! 🤪
I wish I could show you what I just saw but unfortunately, I can’t right now… 😓

Back from September 2019, I bring you the very 1st and very early glimpse at which I guess will unveil as !!! Yes, time has already come to meet the new through gorgeous 5K renders made on behalf of new coming Partner @digitindia -> https://www.digit.in/mobile-phones/exclusive-first-look-at-2019-iphone-xi-renders-45655.html  pic.twitter.com/97jrlTHQ5G

The fact that the 2019 iPhones may have three cameras is cross-referenced by an earlier report by Bloomberg that states Apple will adopt long-distance 3D ToF technology on the 2019 iPhones. With a non-aligned camera module on the back, Apple could adopt the technology for the rear camera, similar to the Oppo R17 Pro. ToF or Time of Flight technology relies on how much time light takes to bounce off an object to create a 3D map. Sony is presently manufacturing 3D sensors for the technology, and the Bloomberg report stated the publication spoke to Sony to confirm the news. The leaked renders, as a result seem to be accurate to the information available so far.


The third camera can be used to focus faster on the object, and to create 3D models. It can track objects even in dark almost instantaneously by throwing laser pulses at the object and measuring the time taken by the laser to bounce back to the sensor. The sensors can have an even bigger impact in AR and VR. Sony claims the ToF sensor can be used to map rooms in real-time. In a demonstration, the report claimed Sony showed the camera can be used to track user’s hands in a game, like casting a spell.


“Cameras revolutionized phones, and based on what I’ve seen, I have the same expectation for 3D [cameras],” Satoshi Yoshihara, Head of Sony’s sensor division told Bloomberg. Sony plans to ramp up the production of rear and front facing 3D ToF sensors to meet the iPhone demand. The production is expected to kick start late summer.

First look at 2019 Apple iPhone XI



The 2019 iPhones are still nine months away from becoming available. And while we can confirm the flagship smartphones will use a new technology to improve photography, the design itself is not final. However, the renders reveal the black-coloured rear panel will be made of glass (the shine around the edges denotes that). The Apple logo will remain the centre of attraction though, positioned in the top centre.


An earlier report also claimed Apple will not have a major design revamp. Tipster Ice Universe had noted in a Tweet that Apple will stick to using the notch in 2019 and in 2020, the company is expected to launch iPhones with punch-hole displays.


While the presence of three cameras certainly sound impressive, it is likely to push up the cost of production further. In a teardown of the iPhone XS Max, it was noted that the bill of materials of the 256GB 2018 flagship iPhone was $443, as compared to the $1243 price tag it fetches in the US. Knowing Apple and its affinity to use high-quality components, the cost is likely to increase further. Now it remains to be seen whether that will affect the price of the 2019 iPhones.


Apple reduced the forecast of iPhone sales for the upcoming quarterly report after lower-than-expected sales in 2018. The company has introduced price-cuts and trade-in incentives to boost sales of the 2018 iPhones. Many analysts believe the ongoing trade war between US and China have hurt iPhone sales in China, while the high price of the iPhones in India have led to a lacklustre response in the world’s second largest smartphone market.



It remains to be seen whether by adding a third camera to the setup (and making the iPhone look extremely ugly in the process), Apple can bounce back from a disappointing 2018. The company has done it multiple times in the past, and as the leaks suggest, a three-camera iPhone will be the key to company’s comeback plan.


While it is too early to believe such leaks, especially with such an awkward design, we suggest that you take this with a pinch of salt.

OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition | Review


Celebrating its 5th anniversary, OnePlus recently announced a collaboration with Formula 1 giant, McLaren, launching the OnePlus 6T McLaren edition priced Rs 50,999. “Salute to speed” is the justification for it, and for the most part, the two complement e


ach other perfectly. Both brands are icons of speed — One on the race tracks and the other, in the hands of people. While many thought the collaboration would simply mean another sexy colour variant, OnePlus took us by surprise, packing the most amount of RAM in the phone ever. 10GB worth of memory is the highlight of the device, apart from the 30W fast charging which OnePlus rechristened as Warp Charge.


A word about the tests

The tests we used to measure the performance of the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition are a combination of synthetic and extreme real-world scenarios. There’s nothing out there in the smartphone space that can really leverage so much RAM. Even Android 9 Pie’s resource management doesn’t have the provision for so much RAM and as a result, even if you keep 50 apps open (hypothetically), it won’t make any difference as Android will start killing the apps after say, the tenth app you launch.

With that in mind, here’s how the OnePlus 6T McLaren edition performed in our tests:

Test 1: Synthetic Benchmarks

The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition was made to pass through the usual rounds of benchmark tests. The results were a little surprising and we spent some time figuring out why. Turns out the 8GB+128GB OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple edition performed better than the 10GB OnePlus 6T McLaren edition on all the three popular mobile benchmarks — AnTuTu 7.0, 3DMark Slingshot and Geekbench Single Core and Multi Core tests.



While the difference weren’t all that big, it dampened our expectations from the McLaren branded phone. On AnTuTu 7.0, the McLaren edition scored 293811 while the Thunder Purple OnePlus 6T scored 295197, a difference of around 1386 points.



On Geekbench Single Core, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition scored 2302 against the regular OnePlus 6T’s 2375, a difference of 73 points. Even on multi-core tests, the McLaren edition charted 8691 as compared to the Thunder Purple OnePlus 6T’s 8856, ahead by 165 points.



Even on 3DMark Slingshot, the OnePlus 6T McLaren gave a score of 6198 against the 8GB OnePlus 6T’s 6359, a difference of 161 points.

The difference, even though negligible, was quite baffling. Everything in the OnePlus 6T McLaren edition is the same as the regular variant, save for the RAM under the hood. At least, that’s what OnePlus advertised. It was also easy to figure out that even the benchmark apps couldn’t put so much RAM into use. However, investigating deeper into the scores, we figured the RAM module on the McLaren edition, despite having a larger memory, is slower than that on the OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple.



On AnTuTu, the RAM score of the OnePlus 6T McLaren came up to 3381 while the 8GB OnePlus 6T scored 3390, a difference of just 9 points. That’s just an arbitrary number you can say, but that difference in score was corroborated by Geekbench’s findings.

In the single-core tests, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition had a memory latency higher than the 8GB OnePlus 6T. Anyone remotely familiar with how computers work will know a higher latency is never a good thing. Furthermore, the memory bandwidth on the OnePlus 6T McLaren edition is lower than the 8GB variant. All this, despite having a larger amount of available memory. The difference was the same in the multi-core tests as well, and we presume, that’s the reason behind slightly lower scores on synthetic benchmarks.

Let’s simplify the concept of RAM for you guys. To begin with, the software available for the device needs to be able to exploit it, which in the case of Android smartphones isn’t available. However, let us understand why the higher capacity and slower speed of the RAM isn’t a good thing. Think of RAM as the size of a room and the speed of the RAM as the number of doors in that room. RAM as the name suggests is Random Access Memory which means data comes in and out of RAM as and when you use the phone. Keeping our room and door analogy in mind, a large room with more doors (the 8GB RAM variant of the phone) will always be more efficient than a larger room with fewer doors. Remember, data needs to go in and out of this room as fast as possible and even though the size of the room is important (8GB or 10GB RAM), so is the speed at which it can enter and exit the room.

Winner: 8GB OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple

Test 2: Batch edit JPEG files

Synthetic benchmarks, as the name suggests, are artificially induced scenarios that run the same instruction set on every device to offer a standardized measurement. While it helps in comparing two similar devices, real-world usage isn’t always taken into account. That’s why we devised a performance test of batch editing JPEG files. It’s a good measurement of RAM performance as more available memory is always good for such tasks.

We divided the test into four parts — One batch with 40 images, another with 80, then with 120 images and finally, with 150 images. For every batch, we applied a preset Cross-Process filter to the images and batch processed them, and recorded the time it took for both the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition and the 8GB variant to complete each set.

Here are the results:

In this case, it’s clear that the 10GB RAM on the OnePlus 6T McLaren has some impact on the processing. The higher memory allows the phone to store more data in real-time for the processor, and as a result, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition completed each test round, around 3 seconds faster than the 8GB variant.

Winner: OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition
